I regret to say that about this really great strategy game:
the longer the game lasts the more likely it is to crash.the mp-game :(
I honestly had no longer the patience to try it again after several of my games ongoing for more than 3to4 weeks after 10-15 turns with 3-4 players and 30 turns in 1v1 and then the map crashed with for the player unknown reason (e.g loading screen hangs at 100% or ur turn doesn't start.after seeing the enemy move and end his/her turn.
The thrill to play has lost me because the maps were getting to the interesting part to employ your army u worked hard to get to the right spot on the map and then the game breaks it.
But thanks for your patience.
Hope your games stay alive
PS: The smaller maps work fine because there is not so much place for employing great strategys and u act/react directly to seen enemy forces and the game is done after max 15turns
